No! Put the 'S' on the Other End

August 19, 2018

There are some words that you might think take an S for a plural when in fact they don’t, but you can hook an S at the beginning instead.


The list below shows first the base word, followed by words made by hooking a letter in front and then finally any words that can be made by hooking a letter afterwards. Because the base word can never be followed with an S there might be no words in that final column.


Also, I am listing so many words, that I won’t be including the meanings, so if there are any that are interesting you will have to look them up yourself.
